Fundraiser for Kids with Disabilities

Adam Ferrara

On Wednesday, May 25th, 2016, Bright Steps Forward held our inaugural Comedy 4 Kids fundraiser at the Ft. Lauderdale Improv starring the –hilarious– actor and comedian, Adam Ferrara, and also featuring comedian Maryellen Hooper.
It was a great evening of laughter and good will to raise funds to provide critical and early therapeutic interventions for children with disabilities in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties.

What We Do

The Spons'a-kid program


Bright Steps Forward has created a unique new fundraising program for families worldwide who cannot afford the myriad of therapies needed for their child. Our concept is simple: we create a customized fundraising page for each child where they can tell their compelling story and set their fundraising goal. Parents then share the link to the page with family, friends and social networks who are encouraged to support the cause with a donation and help the campaign go viral.
